Under the new medical insurance arrangements, the separate specification of Commonwealth and fund benefits in documents issued to contributors by the funds will be discontinued, as proposed in the Nimmo Committee's recommendation 26.


Recommendation 12 in the Nimmo Report relates to the payment of hospital benefits in excess of the amount of hospital accounts - a practice which the Committee considered should be discontinued. The Government sees merit in the Committee's view on this subject and will give the recommendation further consideration in the light of other relevant factors such as the proposal for an all-inclusive hospital fees system.
